problems are met and dealt with as concrete situational tasks, in restricted settings with di¤erent but concrete partici- pants that operate within and generate local, linguistic, and interactional contexts. Keywords: collaborative medical work; distributed cognition; medical discourse; medical problem solving; discursive control; profes- sional vision. 1. Introduction When medical problems are presented to a hospital ward, they tend to expand as the patient is invited to provide information about his or her problem; in this process, professionally and institutionally

show that, in every case, ‘otherness’ escapes discursive control and representation. Rather than on Shakespeare, Lobsien concentrates on the exceptional status of Aphra Behn’s ro- mance-like narrative published in the year of theGloriousRevolution: a text deeply imbuedwith the aristocratic spirit of theRestorationwhich foreshadows the ‘rise of the novel’ as the dominant literary genre of ‘long’ eighteenth-century culture from the ‘uncanny’ perspective of a female narrative voice.

discursive control . Discursive control also comprises the intrapersonal ratiocinative aspect which, although presupposing social relations to be fully developed, is not a good that we can enjoy at the hands of others (Pettit 2001a, ch. 4). Discursive address denotes the conversational stance that we display when engaging in deliberative practices: When one is actively treated in a discursive manner by others, and thereby recognized as a free person, one enjoys discursive authorization or address. One is taken to be able to entertain and offer reasons that are relevant to

discourse can be Orderly' in terms of the interactive turn- taking structure, without displaying ideological coherence across different participant utterances, and participants may either share or not share ideological background assumptions without this affecting the orderliness of the talk. 594 Joanna Thornborrow IV. From Orderliness' to 'controP in the discourse Having discussed the issues of order, background assumptions and con- flict in discursive practices with regard to the data in (1), I now move to a broader examination of features of discursive control in

secret of evading the ruling discourse and creating a literary language of his own. To emphasise his freedom from society’s discursive control he even claims – though writing in a house not far from the centre of London – “I was living far from the civilized world” (Theroux 1990, 421). My Secret History deals with the stipulations and the benefits of writing an autobiography. If authors succeed in this task they “come to consciousness of who they are” (Smith and Watson 2010, 39) and identities are established. Indeed, it has been argued that a life which is not

of the Maoist stage – the figure of the scar carrying an overtone of closure – and an opening up to a new political and social reality. It undoubtedly did contribute to a kind of social discursivity control on the Cultural Revolution. However, we must remember that Scar Literature was the work of a number of authors writing in a variety of styles and taking a variety of stances. And, finally, can we demand that literature shoulder the duty of explaining politics or the rigorousness of the historiographic construction? Certainly not. Symbolic work in the field of

display asymmetries in the distribution of, and rights to, knowledge between institutional and lay participants. In these sequences, institutional representatives typically maintain greater epistemic status regarding the topics of talk and exercise greater discursive control over the trajectory of the interaction than do the lay participants ( Drew and Heritage 1992 ; Freed and Ehrlich 2010 ; Heritage and Clayman 2010 ; Freed 2015 ). In this way, institutional representatives enact their “institution-relevant identities” ( Heritage 2004 : 106) as they carry out their

alternative perspective for the “crises of witnessing” than those offered by 216 | CHRISTIAN DAHL psychoanalysis and trauma studies (for instance Felman & Laub, 1992; Caruth, 1996). In particular, I will draw on Phillip Pettit’s republican theory of freedom, which stresses the importance of discursive control to the definition of personal freedom. As I will argue, the crises of witnessing in slave narratives are essen- tially connected to questions of discursive control, a fact which has hitherto been insufficiently conceptualized by scholarship.
